If you stay up to date on the newest trends and procedures, you may have heard of non-surgical rhinoplasty. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a procedure in which aesthetic irregularities of the nose are addressed using dermal fillers. Many individuals who are unhappy with the appearance of their nose and do not wish to undergo surgery may think that this is a miracle procedure. However, Dr. Sabbagh would not recommend it, as it is only effective in very limited situations.
Uses for Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
So, when is a non-surgical rhinoplasty appropriate? “Probably the best use for non-surgical rhinoplasty would be touch ups after someone has had a surgical rhinoplasty,” Dr. Sabbagh said. “If there’s a small irregularity in the bridge or something like that, you can inject a little bit of filler and correct that, and that filler would last a year or so, but past that, non-surgical rhinoplasty would be something that doctors who do not perform rhinoplasties would recommend.”
Overall, the non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure is a very limited procedure, has very short-term results, and does not provide predictable results. “However, if you were to undergo a non-surgical rhinoplasty, make sure the surgeon is using a hyaluronic acid filler such as Juvéderm or Restylane, since these are dissolvable if you don’t like the result.” Dr. Sabbagh said.
Stick to Rhinoplasty for Superior Results
If patients are searching for a permanent solution to the appearance of their nose, a surgical rhinoplasty procedure is the best option. Not only can a rhinoplasty permanently improve the aesthetic appearance of the nose, it can also correct structural irregulates to improve breathing.
If you’re looking to have a rhinoplasty, you should definitely find a surgeon who is able to do both non-surgical and surgical procedures, but who has performed many rhinoplasties and performs many of them during a year.
